Irritant / corrosive response data:
In the primary eye irritation test, no abnormalities of the cornea and iris were observed. The conjunctivae showed redness (score 1) in 2 animals, and in 1 animal discharge (score 1) at the first reading. Later on no abnormalities were seen.
Other effects:
none

Any other information on results incl. tables

Study design

To test for primary eye irritation, the test material was instilled into the conjunctival say of rabbits. The first examination of the treated eye followed 1 hour after instillation. The examinations were performed daily for further 7 days.

Results

In the primary eye irritation test, no abnormalities of the cornea and iris were observed. The conjunctivae showed redness (score 1) in 2 animals, and in 1 animal discharge (score 1) at the first reading. Later on no abnormalities were seen.


Conclusion

According to these results, for regulatory purposes the test material has to be classified as non-irritant for the eyes.
